yeah, the cops are trying to cut down on lolo's breaking down on the freeway and stuff due to the little rims. But I see mainly big bodies and VERY rarely and g-bodies on the shoulder due to a tire popping or whatnot.

as long as you are running radial tires, you shouldn't have a weight issue... if you look up the gross vehicle weight (GVW)for your car and divide it by 4, the number you come up with can't exceed the weight limit for the tires... and it more than likely won't...

and if you have to, get 14's... I've had both on my Cutty and they don't look bad, but I prefer my 13's as well.

exactly what vegashopper said. i got pulled over in my 68 wagon for having too small of tires. (175/75R14)

i went to a truck scale and weighed the car, i went with a full tank and huge speakerbox etc :)twak: should have went empty and no box)

look at the rating on the side of the tires and multiply by 4, i bet its more than what the car weighs. i think 13s are about 850 per tire times 4 is 3400 so you should be cool unless its lifted.

I WOULD NOT PUT 14'S ON A -GODY UNLESS ITS A HOPPER / TO ME THEY LOOK TO BIG FOR THE CAR . I WOULD WAIT TILL I ACTUALLY GOT A TICKET ,PUT THE STOCKS ON , SIGN IT OFF .AND HAVE THE 13'S BACK ON IN THE AFTERNOON . FUCK THE COPS........ON A SIDE NOTE IT IS TRUE ABOUT THE WIEGHT RATING ON TIRES . 13'S ARE ACTUALLY EVEN UNDERRATED FOR A G-BODY AND DEFFINATLY TO SMALL FOR FULL SIZE CADDYS AND IMPALAS . BUT THAT IS THE LOOK . BUT I HAVE TO SAY FROM A SAFTEY STANDPOINT I ROLL 14'S ON MY CADDY .MAINLY CAUSE ITS A DAILY. IF I DECIDE TO GO ALL OUT IT WILL BE ON 13'S
MY 2 :puffin: :scrutinize:

i put 14s on everything,but my cutty, the 13's just look right on it.not small at all. Well, tell him to get you the book and find you where it says what size rims you can have.Smaller rims are actually safer than the big 20+ inch rims because you can fit a phatter tire.go hit some potholes on 28's with rubber band tires and see how they hold up. Now they small tires that we put on our 13's, thats another story,but he didnt say tires, he said rims

the funny thing about people scared of tearing up trannys and motors,,so i ride 14's excuse,,is there not even an inch taller (if your running 175/70) ,,because the tire is thinner than a 155/80,,,,so they even out ,,,,smaller wheel/bigger tire=bigger wheel/smaller tire

they just square and look funny

same with hoppers,,14's are flatter which is BADD for hopping (unless your running bobo tires)
